Rezeph

Rezeph (ReeĀ“zif)

A town cited as having fallen to Assyria (2Kgs 19:12; Isa 37:12) and symbolizing in part the unstoppable Assyrian force. Possibly it is modern Rezzafeh, about a hundred miles southeast of Aleppo, off the south bank of the Euphrates River.

2Kgs 19:12

12Have the gods of the nations delivered them, the nations that my predecessors destroyed, Gozan, Haran, Rezeph, and the people of Eden who were in Telassar?

Isa 37:12

12Have the gods of the nations delivered them, the nations that my predecessors destroyed, Gozan, Haran, Rezeph, and the people of Eden who were in Telassar?
